i-mate JAQ... messaging PPC

This is something a bit more interesting also from i-mate.
It's called the i-mate JAQ, this one has Windows Mobile 5 PocketPC Phone Edition.
It looks a bit ugly but it is the form factor I was hoping for as it has landscape display and a full QWERTY keyboard with no moving parts. I'd get this in a heartbeat if it had 3G or 3.5G and a more robust processor.
Some specs:
TI OMAP 850 200mhz [yikes! it's the same as the Wizard's might be a bit underpowered for a PPC PE]
64Mb RAM/128Mb ROM
Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE [world phone but no 3G or 3.5G]
Bluetooth 1.2 [not sure about A2DP]
Landscape Touchscreen qVGA display
QWERTY keyboard
miniUSB [11 pins unsure if this is the same with my current device]
miniSD Expansion
no WiFi [not a big deal if it had 3 or 3.5G but it doesn't!]
no Camera [not a big deal]

All in all this could have been a great PPC PE if it had a faster processor and highspeed data. Pity that it falls short in these departments. Also i-mate should really re-think their naming and branding system it doesn't sound and look too professional.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
